Previewing a Object for Rearrangementing

   Disclosed is a user interface method for rearrangementing
objects in WYSIWYG editing systems.

   Objects can be created in documents, and can be removed
from them.  The removed objects have been kept.  They aren't
displayed, but their last position in a document and their
properties have been stored in each document.  Therefore, they can be
reused.

   There is a list contains the removed objects from a
document.  It shows objects information, such as name, type, and
size, in text.  By selecting a object as a list item on the list,
the previewing image of the object is displayed at the last position
where it was placed before removing in the editing area.  It is also
displayed with its properties.

   User will be able to decide a target object easily, by
using this previewing image.
